Minimally invasive laparoscopic cholecystectomy cures the problem. It's an outpatient surgery. ...Read more

Hi im soon to be having an operation to remove my gallbladder as it is full of stones and making me very poorly. During an ultra sound scan a shadow was found on the tail end of my pancreas and liver. Iv only just turned 28 what could this be please?

Not enough info: Without seeing the actual ultrasound or at least the ultrasound report, it would be difficult to figure out what is meant by a "shadow" in your pancreas or liver. It is possible that they could have meant that you have a stone in your bile duct, but your surgeon will be sure to check for that in the proper setting. If you have the report itself, consider a consult on HealthTap Prime or Concierge. ...Read more

What is function of gallbladder in body... What will be its impact on body when we removed it for stone surgery.?

Bile storage: The gallbladder stores bile produced in the liver. When you eat a meal, it contracts and releases bile into the first part of the small intestine. The bile helps you break up and digest fat. If the gallbladder is removed, there is a constant trickle of bile into the small intestine. Most people do fine without their gallbladder, and if it is removed for real disease, they feel better. ...Read more

Gallbladder removed, no stones, pain or issues. Doc said removed bcuz it disfunctioned from being on NPO too long from other surgery prior. Possible?

Unfortunate: I am sorry to hear you had your gallbladder removed. I believe organs should be removed only as a last resort when there are no other options. It does not seem necessary to remove a gallbladder when you were having no stones, pain or issues. Many people have fasted long periods without harm to their gallbladder. At this point I advise taking Ox Bile and lipase enzymes with your meals. ...Read more

I recently had my gall bladder removed. One week later a kidney stone was detected. Could this develope from surgery or was the stone there for a long time? Pain is same before gall bladder was removed.

Unrelated: Kidney stone and gallstones would entirely be unrelated, and the kidney stone would not be related to your surgery. You may still be healing and having surgical discomfort from the gallbladder surgery and the kidney stone may just be present. If the kidney stone is entering or blocking the ureter, then the kidney stone may cause pain. ...Read more

Is a gall bladder flush safe for my 11 year-old? My son's appendics almost ruptured and was removed in september. At the time a gall stone showed up as well on his x-ray. I would much rather do a flush that is safe than have him go through surgery again.

There : There is nothing in authentic medical literature that refers to a "gallbladder flush." I have had several patients mention this to me and my advice is to not do this. Causing a gallstone to pass can be more harmful and dealy than not. I agree with the other surgeons taht if he is symtomatic from this then treatment would be laparoscopic cholecystectomy. ...Read more
